The Lower Deschutes. Trout action is good from WS to Trout Creek and there are Steelhead all the way up from the mouth. The most steelhead at this time are still found below Mack’s Canyon but there have been confirmed catches in the Maupin stretches and up in the Warm Springs to TC run. That is great news!

For trout, Euro Nymphing has been fantastic. 

There a lot of October Caddis hatching now. Stonefly nymphs, small caddis (tan #14-16, black #18-20) PMD and BWO’s are important. 

Most of the steelhead I’ve heard caught by friend have been on nymphs, but plenty of fish have also been taken on the swing which of course is the ultimate way to get a steelhead!
